University of Texas at El Paso UTEP is located in El Paso, Texas, on the border between the United States and Mexico. UTEP students live and study in the world's largest binational metropolitan area, pursuing cultural, social, and academic opportunities not available on most university campuses.

UTEP has been an important part of the El Paso community since it was founded as the Texas School of Mines and Metallurgy more than 90 years ago.

In 1914, the school opened with 27 students and a handful of faculty and staff. From this modest beginning, UTEP has grown into a dynamic urban university that today serves the needs of more than 19,800 students.

More than 70 percent of our student population is Mexican-American. In recognition of our success in creating educational opportunities for non-traditional students, the National Science Foundation designated UTEP as a Model Institution for Excellence, one of only six in the country. This has resulted in a multimillion dollar NSF grant to support UTEP's science, computer science, engineering, and mathematics programs.
